Wonderful Langley Castle ????

We are on our way home from the most amazing weekend at Langley Castle (sadly)!
What a beautiful place!
Room was stunningly beautiful - food superb - staff terrific and we really couldn’t fault it!
Having never stayed in a castle before we weren’t sure what to expect but it exceeded our expectations in every way- the Cadwallader room was fabulous and I would highly recommend a stay here.
Didn’t see any ghosts (thank goodness) but did enjoy a five star stay ????
Thank you all

Birthday and anniversary celebration

We had a lovely overnight stay, starting with high tea or late lunch followed by a visit to the Sill a Northumberland National Park Visitor’s Centre. Dinner is delicious and the accommodation in the castle is sumptuous!

Just fabulous

This was our 3rd stay here and we have already booked for the 4th....that says it all really. It is not often that we book the same place twice, or third and definitely not a fourth time! You know you have arrived when you drive up the long driveway and see the castle at the top. The rooms are fabulous and ours (The Radcliffe Room) even had a sauna in it. A gorgeous, huge 4 poster bed and a little 3 piece suite. The bathroom is massive with a stand alone shower and a huge sunken bath as well as twin sinks. The window seats are really quirky as they are set within 6 foot thick walls and have padded seating on either side. The food is wonderful. A lovely freshly cooked Northumbrian breakfast each morning and a perfectly cooked dinner at night served by attentive but not obtrusive waiting staff. This was preceeded and followed by drinks in the drawing room in front of the log fire. All the staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. We can`t wait for our next visit. We didn`t do the battlements tour as we`ve already done it but we can highly recommend it. There`s even a few peacocks and peahens that wander around the grounds.
All in all a fabulous couple of nights.
